I wonder if the neighbours have started downloading lots of stuff?

I can't help feeling that my neighbours have started streaming. The graph of the speeds I can obtain looks like a stock market crash. Sad
I would go and ask them but they all live too far away. I should really phone the fire brigade and warn them that the telephone exchange is liable to meltdown in the near future.

...or there's been a rash of new 'customers' on your exchange. What's it's status.

What does your graph show; Sync speed or download rate?

According to that, the local exchange is unmanned on Thursdays and Sundays. Saturdays are covered by a skeleton service due to Mrs McGlashin's recent crash diet.

As it's a speed test, it does point to more being Exchange contention unfortunately.
